Reaching the Unattainable

Harminder Boparai's avatar Harminder Boparai

My art piece is created around the illusion of acquiring wealth. Humans are the only species out of the 9 million total living here on this earth, who pay with its “present” to attain a “future” that is not even promised. And in the process a human loses everything, including his health and his dear ones without understanding that what he thought of as wealth is in fact the burden that he carries. And the golden throne shown as the chair is in fact his tomb, which when he actually is able to achieve, it will only be used to bury him. In conclusion, life is about living in the present and finding happiness, we do not want to kill our “now” for a non-existing “then”.
